President Donald Trump's decision to host the G7 Summit at his own golf resort could be evidence of "possible corruption."
"That was the risk from Day One: foreign governments and others trying to seek favor because we know Trump pays attention to this," Democratic Representative Gerry Connolly said.
"Even the appearance of corruption damages our institutions and our faith in government," Republicans for the Rule of Law legal advisor and spokesman Chris Truax said.
"This is certainly impeachable conduct of the sort that this president has engaged in from the very beginning," Laurence Tribe told Newsweek.
Representative Jamie Raskin explained that the emoluments clause forbids the president from receiving any additional money from the government beyond his personal salary.
"The Committee does not believe that U.S. taxpayer funds should be used to personally enrich President Trump, his family, and his companies," a Democratic committee chairman wrote in a series of letters requesting information and documents.
A top House Democrat told his staff to warn foreign government officials against spending money at Trump properties, saying that, by doing so, they're helping the president violate the Foreign Emoluments Clause.
The case is one of three ongoing lawsuits against the president for alleged violations of the Constitution's Emoluments Clause.
Trump has been accused of violating the Constitution's Emolument's Clause.
"We believe that these events raise several potential constitutional and ethical violations," the letter from Democratic lawmakers stated.
This is more than double the price of the suite in January last year.
Trump has continued to face conflicts-of-interest accusations since becoming president.
The president's massive business empire was sued three days after he was inaugurated.
The group of Democrats alleges that payments to Trump Organization are illegal.
Trump has repealed one piece of anti-corruption legislation, and threatened others.
China has also provisionally authorized 38 trademarks for Trump and a related company.
It's not easy to sue the president, but that won't stop these plaintiffs.
The emoluments clause has never been litigated; so whether Trump's foreign business dealings violate it is a matter of interpretation with no previous precedent.
